Best Ways to Increase Your Testosterone Level
There could be some ways to naturally boost your testosterone; however, if you have been diagnosed with low testosterone, the only effective treatment is testosterone replacement therapy.
New research suggests that the root ashwagandha may be useful in boosting testosterone levels and enhancing male fertility.
A recent press release discussed a study that was carried out involving men who were taking ashwagandha supplements daily for 12 weeks. It has been found that the natural remedy significantly reduces stress levels. It also enhanced antioxidant levels and overall semen quality.
The results of this research suggest that this root, which has long been used in Ayurveda (Traditional Indian Medicine), has the ability to boost the production of sex hormones such as testosterone.
The researchers in the study believed that Ashwagandha might help boost your levels of testosterone directly, but it may also do so through its effects on cortisol. Ashwagandha is also known for its stress-relieving properties.
This effect is likely due to the supplement’s ability to lower the “stress hormone” cortisol. Cortisol is a “testosterone killer.” The higher your cortisol levels, the lower your levels of testosterone. This plant gets its potent medicinal power from withanolides, naturally occurring steroidal lactones that are found in the root and berries.
The same double-blind study that noted increased muscle size and strength in men taking Ashwagandha while on a weight-lifting program also noted that the supplement seemed to boost testosterone. In fact, the testosterone levels of the men who took the root extract were over “five times higher than those who didn’t.”
Why Are Testosterone Levels So Important?
It is very good for every man to know about dietary changes and supplements that may be able to boost testosterone levels. This is because every man’s testosterone level declines as he ages.
Once you are over 30, your testosterone level starts to drop at a rate of 1% – 2% every year. By the time you are 70, your testosterone level is likely to be half of what it was in your 20s. Due to this steady decline, most men between the ages of 35 and 65 are suffering from some degree of age-related testosterone deficiency.
The symptoms of age-related low testosterone include:
- Low libido and erectile dysfunction
- Lack of energy
- Loss of lean muscle
- Weight gain particularly increased belly fat
- Disturbed sleep
- Mood swings, depression, and anxiety
- Memory loss and cognitive difficulties
Any disease or injury that impacts the testes could lead to low testosterone in men. However, the primary cause of low testosterone or “andropause” in men over 40 is the normal drop in testosterone that occurs as men age.
Despite its continued need, once you exit your teen years, your testosterone levels start to decline steadily. It is this drop in testosterone levels that occur the older you get that is primarily responsible for low testosterone in men.
While there is evidence that some natural supplements like ashwagandha root may help to naturally boost your testosterone levels, if you have been diagnosed with low testosterone, the only real way to treat it is with testosterone replacement therapy.
What Are the Benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Here are some of the many benefits that hundreds of patients are experiencing from testosterone replacement at our West Palm Beach, Florida-based hormone clinics right now.
A 2009 study concluded that “Restoring testosterone levels to within the normal range by using testosterone replacement therapy can improve many of the effects of [low testosterone].
Most importantly, these include beneficial effects on mood, energy levels, patients’ sense of well-being, sexual function, lean body mass, muscle strength, bone mineral density (BMD), cognition, and some benefits on cardiovascular risk factors.”
